Like being in a Disney Movie

The French Country House was everything we expected and more. The house and grounds were majestic and beautiful. With the warm, homely interior and lush green grounds, you truly feel like you're in a Disney movie. Kay was such a lovely host and her pup Freddie welcomed us into the home with open arms and treated us like royalty. Definitely recommend organising for Kay to make dinner while you're there, she is an amazing cook. Thanks so much for a magical stay!
